As with any project of reasonable size, this project was divided into several components. In our case, the workload was shared by four teams.
- The executive production team was responsible for general planning and the procurement of resources. Aside from their executive position, they worked on the funding for the project.
- The community liaison team was in contact with the local community (in the case of this particular project, the expat community in Leiden). They conducted focus groups with local expats to gather stories relevant to the production.
- The artistic direction team worked hard to bring to life all the information gathered in the focus groups, that is, by means the actual theatrical production. This included contributions to the stage design and the performance itself.
- Finally, the media communication team was in charge of documenting and distributing all the information regarding the performance and its progress via the Internet. That included the creation of this website and a number of social media profiles.
These four teams combined made for the power-packed crew that created Loneliness, a performance that left behind good memories and food for thought for the Leiden community.
